recipe for deux dilettantes


It only takes few ingredients to start a blog but under its simple façade it requires a great deal of discipline and dedication. The result might not quite meet your expectations right away but be assured that the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it (at least that’s what we were told). Remember to keep it light and laugh often!

Makes 1 blog


  • 2 young women ready to tackle new challenges
  • a dash of determination
  • a sprinkle of curiosity
  • a heap of love
  • 1 user-friendly (for dummies!) content management system
  • endless pots of tea


Combine two women transplanted to Seattle, make them realize their common interests, let it sit for a while…

After a while (can vary) women should discuss their desire to start a blog and realize they can be a good team. Although they’re not professional, determined as they are, they know they can create quality content.

Add a sprinkle of curiosity for their surroundings… Mix slowly while pouring in enormous amounts of love. Let it simmer.

In the meantime, push them to acknowledge their interest for geekery and discover WordPress. Bring it to a roaring boil. While waiting, consume endless cups of green tea (one of our faves) and try not to throw your computer out of the window!

Enjoy warm or cold, at any time of the day or night!

For best results, get the support of your family and friends and keep the candy jar not too far away!

  1. I’m looking forward to following a food blog where one of the authors has the arduous task of trying to keep Peter’s belly full!
